Review: Pure by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Paperback: 329 pages
Release date: April 3rd, 2012
Publisher: Spencer Hill Press
Goodreads Summary: There is need. And then there is Fate...

Being destined to become some kind of supernatural electrical outlet isn't exactly awesome--especially when Alexandria's "other half" is everywhere she goes. Seth's in her training room, outside her classes, and keeps showing up in her bedroom--so not cool. Their connection does have some benefits, like staving off her nightmares of the tragic showdown with her mother, but it has no effect on what Alex feels for the forbidden, pure-blooded Aiden. Or what he will do--and sacrifice--for her.

When daimons infiltrate the Covenants and attack students, the gods send furies--lesser gods determined to eradicate any threat to the Covenants and to the gods, and that includes the Apollyon... and Alex. And if that and hordes of aether-sucking monsters didn't blow bad enough, a mysterious threat seems willing to do anything to neutralize Seth, even if that means forcing Alex into servitude... or killing her.

When the gods are involved, some decisions can never, ever be undone.

Wow, what can I say? Pure is made of perfection! Words are not enough to express how deeply inlove I am with this book. If you think Half-Blood is amazing, well Pure is more than that in epic proportions. This sequel picks up after the events that happened in the first book. 

I won’t go much into the detail of the story and spoil you people. Just that Alex has experienced more grief for her mother and the other person close to her heart. Jennifer Armentrout has outdone herself with characterization, leaving me feeling the kind of pain Alex also feels. And here we continue to deal with Alex and Aiden’s biggest dilemma: their forbidden love. Usually I tend to be annoyed when I see less of male love interest. But it’s a different case in Pure. That is when Seth, the first Apollyon, comes into the picture… thus the full-blown love triangle. If I’m able to pick teams in love triangles, I can’t seem to do the same in this series. I simply admire both of these guys because flaws and all, I know they both genuinely care for Alex. There are scenes, oh those scenes, when I had to fan myself because the temperature went up a few notches from the sizzling attraction. 

Pure is just another of Jennifer Armentrout’s masterpieces that left me breathless and wanting for more. This is by far my favorite book of hers, and all her books are great so that’s saying alot. November seems so far and I’m more than ready for another dose of Half-Bloods and Pures and even Daimons. Again, perfection at its finest!

    1. Agreed and Jennifer has outdone herself in this book. I hope you get to read it soon! Thank you for stopping by Steph. :)

  2. This book totally is perfection at its finest! I completely understand that you can't pick a side. I switch around a lot! Right now, I think I'm Seth, but in Deity, I'll probably switch to Aiden, and AHH! It's such a GREAT love triangle. I can't wait for Deity. Fabulous review, Dea!!

    1. It's probably one of those rare love triangles where I'm not annoyed and frustrated. I can't wait for Deity either! Maybe then I've already picked a side. Thank you!

      And thank you as well for stopping by Sophia. :)
